Munchak on the Texans’ splitting time with Arian Foster and Ben Tate
“Well, I know (Arian) Foster’s been hurt a little bit. I think that’s when Ben (Tate) started getting more reps over the years. He’s a good back. He’s been successful. It’s a good problem to have two good backs.
“It’s a little different style running wise, but they both run the zone game very well which they run. They mix some other things. They do some counters. They do some powers. Not as much as we do, but they do a lot of those things also. I think they’re like we are. They think they can run the ball. It’s a long season. I’m sure there’s going to be games where one guy gets more carries than the other and so on. It’s frustrating probably for them because they all want the carries. They got two good backs that can hurt you.”
